Simon Plowright and Nick Hayward have for many years filmed wild Tasmanian devils on the remote west coast. As the DFTD encroached this pocket of devils remained disease free. Simon and Nick wanted to tell the devils story, before the disease removed the opportunity to film them in the wild.
Simon and Nick Prepare for a shoot.
Using a 'deep lighting' technique, developed over a number of years, where the forest is lit more in the style of drama, rather than doc, these two cinematographers went out into the bush for over 2 years to shoot this 50-minute documentary - The Last Devil.
